My internal thought would perhaps be, "I am forewarned." My external reaction would probably be to simply listen and wait and see if this person would add anything else, such as an example or an explanation as to what they mean. If none would be forthcoming, I would probably not say anything, let it slide, but take notice of the person's reaction in the future, if I would encounter it. goldfish

I think that, for me, the upshot of the situation is, if you're going to pick up your marbles and go home each time something I do or say doesn't please you...good riddance.

Marge as usual a few good responses here. To the question-- who really does respond well to criticism?? I find its not what is said sometimes but the way it is said. And I know I need to be more careful because I can be pretty sarcastic, bu that is not well received by many people. I'm working on that. But if someone told me they didn't respond well to criticism, I might thing they were not open to improve something that another thought was a disadvantage or could be perceived that way.

Thanks for your comments. It sounds like yours is a wait-for-more-evidence approach. That seems to be both moderate and prudent in this situation.

If you don't have a marble staircase for the girl to hurl 'em down and a pop for clean up too.

After reading the replies written so far, a few more questions occur to me that might be good to ask the one who says, "I don't respond well to criticism".

1. If something arises in your life that seems to be harmful or unfair, do you just accept it without ever voicing any criticism or complaint?

2. How can a real relationship develop between two imperfect people if all criticism is disallowed?

3. Have you never criticise anyone for anything?

4. What would you think about someone's telling you, "I don't respond well to criticism".
